, this government takeover of health care. when the government's divided we should use the leverage of controlling at least part of government to try to get the law more to our liking. >> if that strikes you as reasonable and it does at that point, there are several reports the republicans are looking to drop the threat of a government shutdown this september if the affordable care act isn't dismantled. instead, they're looking at at approach which would result in something far worse, like economic armageddon. one of those reports comes from robert cost who writes "sources tell me the house gop will probably avoid using a shutdown as leverage and instead use the debt limit and sequester fights as areas for potential trades. negotiations over increasing the debt limit have frequently been used to wring concessions out of of administration." there might be movement in that direction. delay obama care in exchange for increased debt limit. when "hardball" asked -- we were asked by "hardball" about these reports, to use the debt sealing limit, a spokesman house speaker john boehner's office said no dec
